The Craft Barn - Gifts week

Hi everyone, more gift to show today made for the Craft Barn Blog where there are lots of ideas all week for gift making. Lots of pictures in this post as I'm showing the photographs from four projects :D. I hope you'll pop over to the blog to see what everyone has been making and there are 'how to' details and material links for the projects I've made too.

The paper mache nested crown boxes with lots of Tando Christmas mini's inside and out and Fresco Finish paint and crackle glaze. The Tando products are very impressive as they take ink, paint, dry and wet embossing beautifully.

All of the photographs are clickable for a closer view.

Tando handbag desk tidy which would make lovely storage for markers as it's a good size.

Tando die cut Butterflies from the butterfly grab bag made into a key ring and three fridge magnets. Lots of inky, embossing and stamping techniques on these.
